Popular Health Luck Enhancing Feng Shui Items

By: Jenny Lin
Feng Shui is both an art and science. Originated from ancient China about some three centuries ago, a part of Feng Shui, known as symbolism Feng Shui is the knowledge of placing and arranging good fortune symbols in correct and proper position or direction so as to exert concealed positive Chi powers of a setting to benefit the lives of people. Symbolism Feng Shui is very easy to apply and potent too. Feng Shui enhancers consciously placed in the right Feng Shui orientation of your home can help to harness the Chi or energy which harmonizes the area of its influence, bringing about good fortune, good health, prosperity and happiness to the practitioner.

Health is unarguably the most important thing in one’s life. Without health, one can’t seek to achieve other life’s aspirations. Without health there is no point having a good career and plenty of wealth. Only with good health one can obtain wealth and get to enjoy the many good things in life to the fullest. There are many symbols used in Feng Shui to enhance health and longevity luck, the luck to live a long and fruitful life. Here are some of them:

Wu Lou – Wu Lou or the bottle gourd or the “calabash” is the most powerful symbol of good health which also brings an abundance of divine blessings and can be found in many Chinese homes today. Displaying a Wu Lou in and around the home is a good thing to have to enhance one’s Feng Shui. In ancient times, the Wu Lou is used to store water or potions used during traveling and expeditions. Because of the Wu Lou’s role in keeping the travelers alive, it was given the name the “giver of life” and hence became a symbol of good health. The Wu Lou is also believed to contain the elixir of health, vitality and immortality. This symbol is most widely used in Feng Shui to protect oneself against unnatural death and serious illnesses.

Sau - The God of Longevity or Sau, is probably the most popular deity out of the three star Gods Fuk Luk Sau. He represents good health, longevity and a quality and smooth life. He is often depicted carrying a peach, itself an auspicious symbol for long life and excellent health and a Dragon staff with a Wu Lou.

Peach - The Peach has long been regarded as a traditional symbol for good health, longevity and immortality. Legend has it that the Eight Immortals will be invited by the Goddess of the West for a feast when her peach trees bear fruits, which is how they attained immortality. The most famous folk tale related to the peaches would probably be Journey to the West, where the Monkey God stole and ate the peaches of immortality from the garden of the Goddess of the West and hence attained immortality.

Bamboo - Bamboo is a symbol or icon of longevity, good health and also endurance in Feng Shui because of its ability to stay evergreen all year round and flourish almost everywhere, especially during the winter months.

Crane - The Bird of Immortality, the crane is a very popular symbol that heralds longevity, marital harmony and wisdom and is believed to live a thousand years. The crane is the most favored of all bird symbols of good fortune in Feng Shui next to the phoenix.

Tortoise - The tortoise is sacred and much loved by the Chinese as a symbol of longevity, stability, strength, support and endurance. The Crane is said to live a thousand years but the tortoise is believed to live up to three thousand years and therefore is extremely popular with Feng Shui practitioners who seek to live a long and healthy life.
